Three times, he blasts the Ukrainian national anthem towards Russia’s diplomats. Between every song, he yells slogans in support of Ukraine or against Russia such as “Slava Ukraini” (glory to Ukraine), “Stop Putin now” or “Stop the war.”
“I found a sung version of the Ukrainian anthem, so I go to the main door of the Russian consulate with my iPhone and a Bose speaker, I obviously put the volume to the maximum and I play it,” Sasseville said during an interview Friday.
But on Friday, the consulate seemingly decided to fight back. When Sasseville began his daily musical ritual, he says Russia’s employees fired back with a song of their own through a speaker built into the fence in front of their building.
“They played some music I did not recognize full blast in an attempt to cover me up. So, I put my hand on top of their speaker and I kept playing music,” Sasseville said with a laugh. “I found that really special, we’ve gotten to the point of trying to musically censor me.”
